    So I picked him up today and still he is amazing but in starting to think that I might have made the wrong choice and should have gone with the flaming angel, just feel he belongs in a tank bigger than mine and someone with better knowledge of this animal, or is it just me being a little nervous as I don't wanna loose it!!

    They are a awesome addition to any tank. They eat stint and other presented morsels.

    The big downer with them is not getting them to feed but to keep them away from prop pumps and overflows. If you nail this aspect and keep them " eel safe" they can reel cool and be very spectacular. But as I say they are escape artists of note so close all possibilities of escape.

    Perhaps I should alert a lot stronger. The eel will get sucked into any circulation pump. More so than an anemone. MAKE the circulation pumps VERY safe.
